Stephanie Laney, the lead designer for Surfaces USA, calls Santa Clarita's Woodlands community home - and she has made it her own, fusing contemporary accents with the house's Spanish architecture and dramatic archways.
These dreamy photos will make you wish this Westridge estate was yours to call home.
The Tunnicliffe home in the Westridge Estates may be new to the family of four, but the Spanish Colonial - though only completed in 2012 - conveys a sense of historic stability to guests and residents alike.
We want to extend a special "thank you" to all of the homeowners who have invited us into their inspiring exterior spaces over the last 10 years. We always left better than when we arrived after a "staycation" in your exquisite yards. It has been a great honor to share your gathering places with our readers.
Ten years and over 75 home shoots later, we still can't get enough of seeing - and sharing - the best Santa Clarita has to offer. Here's a look into our very favorite SCV home interiors - plus behind-the-scenes commentary.
Stephanie Laney's Woodlands home exemplifies a transitional Spanish style - an aesthetic that the professional interior designer carried throughout the house.
Mark Justice's Robinson Ranch home is shared with daughter Molly and dog Cooper, but come mid November, you'd think that he also housed a handful of Santa's elves.
For many, buying a model home would mean that the normal "decorating and designing" stage could be skipped, if not in its entirety, than at least in part. But when the Fender family purchased their Westridge model home, only one thing would remain from the builder's original concept: the Chinese slate flooring.
The home of Don and Jamie Miod can be found in a tract, but there's nothing cookie-cutter about their backyard.
Sometimes I walk into a client's home and feel a profound sense of grace and warmth because the house is a true reflection of the family that inhabits the space. Such is the case with two of my favorite clients, Molly and Kevin McCarthy. A walk through the McCarthy's enchanting home is a treat for the eyes and food for the soul. Molly and Kevin's Southern hospitality totally charmed me.
When homeowners Doug and Pat Green designed their home, they intended it to be a family refuge where loved ones could gather and celebrate. Pat Green takes pride in making their loving home an oasis, ideal for all functions and parties.

Good cheer and tidings of the season will abound during Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's 32nd-annual Holiday Home Tour festivities on November 30 and December 1. The "Holiday Surprise and Delight" themed events will benefit Henry Mayo's neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), which opened in June of this year.
The Gervasi's Stevenson Ranch home is a little Tuscan, a little Country French and a lot "borrowed." If, as some say, plagiarism is the highest form of flattery, then Lesley Gervasi has a long list of people and places she's flattered.
SCV homeowners show off their newly-remodeled baths, made possible by some of the most celebrated designers in Santa Clarita.
The Stevenson Ranch home of Vince and Lesley Gervasi is beautiful, but that's not why the family's friends and team members clamor to host events there.
This eclectic home may look "hands off," but upon closer inspection it's clear that it was created with kids in mind. Says interior designer Anne Peters, who worked on the home and is owner of Anne Peters Interiors (296-7439), "From how we used the space to what we put in that space, we focused on how to best serve this family's needs."
When John Rocke and his partner Kathleen J. Burns moved into their Valencia home a year ago, their intentions were clear. "We wanted a great place to entertain and we wanted to create a hotel-like atmosphere for our guests," says Rocke. Remodeling began not long after the couple took residence.

Even old dogs - or long-time homeowners - can learn new tricks. This year we had the privilege to work with some of Santa Clarita's most talented home improvement specialists. Here's what we learned.
Through November 23, the Boys & Girls Club will present their annual Festival of Trees at the Westfield Valencia Town Center (www.scvbgc.org). For this feature we worked with a past Festival of Trees decorator who, even before children roam around neighborhoods saying "trick or treat," creates a Christmas wonderland in her home. Here, she shares her home decorating triumphs (along with a few tragedies!) and proves that "shopping local" is the key to creating gorgeous spaces.
Martin Avila and Fredye Gonzales are celebrating their 20th holiday season together. And, as is standard practice for the community-minded couple, they're spreading the joy to others. This year, their five-bedroom Spanish Hacienda home will serve as an exquisitely-festive destination for Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's Holiday Home Tour.
